Datalastic Frequently Asked Questions
What are the "requests" in the pricing table?

Request refers to your call to the database to retrieve the requested data. For example, real-time position of 1 vessel call to our maritime endpoint is equal to 1 request to the database. 

"Requests" refer to the number of database calls to the Datalastic maritime endpoints.

The request package is reset each billing month. 

We use a smart customer protection technique to track your request consumption. Also, when you reach the limit of your monthly calls, the system will protect you from overspending. For example. Datalastic blocks the incoming calls in case the user reached the limit.

Also, our marine tracking API will automatically reset to zero at the beginning of your billing month.

If you require more requests to be processed you can easily change your plan at any time and increase your request capacity.



What if my request yelds an error, will it be still deducted from my plan?

No, an unsuccessful request to Datalastic maritime Endpoints will not deduct any points from your monthly allowance. Only database calls that actually retrieve the data will be counted for you.
